HyperCard Stacks

Various

HyperCard is application software and a programming tool for Apple Macintosh and Apple IIGS computers. It is among the first successful hypermedia systems before the World Wide Web. 

It combines database abilities with a graphical, flexible, user-modifiable interface. HyperCard also features HyperTalk, a programming language for manipulating data and the user interface.

This combination of features – simple form layout, database abilities, and ease of programming – led to widespread use in many different roles. Some HyperCard users employed it as a programming system for rapid application development of applications and databases, others for building interactive applications with no database requirements, command and control systems, and many examples in the demoscene.

HyperCard was originally released in 1987 for $49.95 and was included for free with all new Macs sold then. It was withdrawn from sale in March 2004 after its final update in 1998. HyperCard ran in the Classic Environment, but was not ported to Mac OS X. 

These stacks have all been uploaded through the HyperCard Online Project. Visit HyperCardOnline.tk to upload your stacks. 

If you see a stack that you authored appear when you do not wish it to be available, you can ask for it to be removed as per the Internet Archive's Copyright Policy.

Note:
When launched, the online emulator will have it's volume set to zero, so you won't hear anything from any stacks that include sound. To fix this, once the emulator has loaded, go to the Apple Menu > Control Panels. Find the Sound icon and open it. Increase the volume from the default zero to something higher.

This XFCN reports whether QuickTime is installed and the version number. The version number is particularly significant to developers now that QT 2.0 is available. There are several XFCNs available that perform a similar task. I wrote this one because some developers indicated that they hadn't found a simple XFCN that offered all of the info they needed. Mark

RenameVol(oldname,newname) is an XFCN which, given a name of a disk (oldname), will rename it to a user-specified string (newname). The interface to the XFCN is kind of clunky now, but I am working on a SelectVol-type XFCN that will be included with a later release. This is alpha-quality material (some might say it's not even that) and may crash your machine as it has not been fully tested and/or debugged, so please treat it like an alpha version XFCN and not as tried-and-true System 6.0.5. :)...

----------------- StripDuplicates XFCN strips any identical lines or items from a container, and returns the altered container. The XFCN does not sort the container afterwards, which keeps it small and fast. There are too many sorting criteria (time, date, numeric, international, etc.) to add sorting efficiently. Besides, there are many excellent sorting XFCNs available already. Non-commercial use of this XFCN is free. =George=

----------------- MonthLong XFCN returns the number of days in a given month. You may already be using a HyperTalk or SuperTalk script for that; however this XFCN is faster and a little more versatile. For example, if you pass no parameters, it returns the number of days in the current month. If you pass the month only, it assumes the current year. Naturally, you can also supply the year. Best of all, you can pass the month as either a name (long or abbreviated) or an integer of any size....

If you supply 'AM' or 'PM', the XFCN returns the time in 24-hour format (e.g. SetHours('11:10','PM') returns '23:10'). If you supply 'Set', the XFCN converts a 24-hour time string to its proper 12-hour string. Version 1.2 adds an important change to the result.
